Monday Made It #4

Here is my fourth week of “Monday Made It!”
Thanks, Tara!

OK  ... if you're just joining me for the 1st time ... beware of the ADHD teacher.

Here it goes:  I have been working on WAY too many projects over the last week.  You will have to see my other blog that I work on with my good friend, Alison:  Planet Happy Smiles to see the other projects I worked on with her! Getting my craft on!

Project #1:
Ikea frames paint project ... I only had to paint 2 white frames ... yellow & purple.  I can not wait to use these with my task cards, welcome signs, positive praise cards,  pictures, etc.  Yahoo! 

Project #2:
Splatter Screen Picture Holder
This is one of those splatter screens from the $1 Store.  I just sprayed it yellow, added the wooden word "family" (after I sprayed it black), and added  my zebra ribbon.  Finally, magnets & pics!  Easy, Breezy!

Project #3:
I saw this on Pinterest & could not find it again or a place to buy it so ... I just made my own.  It turned out cute & hopefully will serve it's purpose.

Project #4:
These are my clips to hang the kiddo's work.  I love the glitter clips & they came out cute. The last picture is all 25 ready to put up today!

Project #5:
My no name board, another project floating around Pinterest.  I loved the glitter clips for the work so much I made some more.  My board is made of peel & stick foam letters, glitter clips, and zebra ribbon.
Turned out cute!

Project #6:
Here are some desk supplies that I made.
See the polka dot tri-fold ... I had to cover it to match my zebra ... The final result of some of my items together. I will take a picture of the whole thing when I get that area of my room set up.

Project #7:
I am the coordinator for Box Tops @ my school.  The picture below is the board I made for registration this year.  I hope it helps other Box Top Leaders out there!

Project #8:
This is a sad project ... taking apart something that I had completely organized for my kinder class. Boo!
I had to clean out all of my drawers and start to remake the drawers for second grade.  I know, you all know how much time it took to make it the 1st time.  I will be making labels to redo the whole thing to fit math & printing them tomorrow.

I started to take it apart, but then stopped & took pictures for anyone who wants to make one.  I saved the labels & will drop them in our TPT store as soon as I can.  Each drawer had a label & inside the drawer I put stickers to show the littles where to put them back.  Inside the drawer I had several stations that the children could use for word work.

The last picture is the bare drawers almost ready for the new differentiation drawers I am making for 2nd grade math.  Yahoo!!!

Wow!  That was a lot ... yet, I have so much more to do ...  Hop on over to  Planet Happy Smiles to see the other projects I worked on with my partner!

I hope you can take one idea with you.
Happy Creating!
